Ynys-hir today

I've heard of other bird species allowing ants to crawl over and clean them, but not Blackbirds.  However I think that was what this fellow was doing at Ynys-hir this morning.  He was perfectly aware of my presence but stayed in an apparent state of rapture and allowed me to get quite close.  I wondered if he might be ill or injured, but after a while he flew off looking strong and healthy.
